Falter by DestinyBlue Falter by DestinyBlue
Finally finished, 40+ hours and 4 months later it's done :)

 Bit of symbolism going on as well. I do like doing pictures like this... though I'll leave it for you to figure out as its quite personal :nod

Congratulations if youve noticed the link between this pictures name and its lineart Papillion destinyblue.deviantart.com/art… They both mean butterfly in another language. Falter is an old germanic word but I like the doubble meaning of it as well, and Papillion is french but I love the sound of the word...

Done in OpenCanvas and with a wacom intuos tablet.

Questions and comments always appreciated :heart:

Hi! I met you at the Hyper Japan expo in Earls Court yesterday and I finally found your card amongst all the others that I'd got from that expo... I love this picture so much! The way the dress flutters and her serene expression is so nice...
